According to a leak, Google’s latest OS could start shipping on supported Pixel and Nexus devices later this month.

Google has already released the final developer preview for Android P and the company is testing the new OS for the better part of the year. Although Google has not given an official roll-out date for Android P, the company says it will launch sometime in the third quarter of the year. Now, the famous Lexter Evan Blass has claimed that the time has come when the official version of Android P will be released on supported Pixel and Nexus devices from August 20.

Blass simply tweeted a picture of a calendar for August with the date August 20 marked with the Android P logo.

If the release date of Android P is actually August 20, then Google may soon announce the name of the next Android OS. A leak has previously revealed that Android P could be called Android Pistachio or Pistachio ice-cream, but like every year, it could be one of the rumors that someone has created.

Android P or Android 9.0 will bring a number of changes to the Android experience, starting with support for gesture navigation. Users will be able to access the new navigation from the gesture menu in the settings, so they will have a choice between this and traditional Android navigation. Android PO will bring native support for Notch, and Google recently announced that the OS will be optimized for two Notches on a phone. The app experience on Android P will be optimized for phones with top and bottom cutouts. There’s also a new Quick Settings menu, adaptive brightness, predictive app action, a new feature called Slice that will show a segment of an app in Google search, and settings in Google’s digital wellbeing program to reduce the time spent on the phone.
